Now, What's Left? Time to Write a New Book?

Hello, friends of Hooterville!

It sure has been a while.

Over the past few years, as most people have moved to Facebook as their primary way of staying connected to each other and to get the national news, I have tended not to write so much, especially politically. Not that I hide or lie about my political inclinations, but being that Facebook is open to everyone on a scale completely different than a blog, with my personal life and musical/work life as the primary focus, I have not been posting as a political writer. Occasionally I will write or share something of a political nature, but, to be honest, I'm not looking for a fight on my Facebook page.

But now, I am looking to start working on the follow-up to The Price of Right. I want to expand on and further explore my ideas about why people end up with a particular political viewpoint, and I want to address some subjects that I did not talk about in my first book, such as racism and LGBT issues. I also want to try again to engage a certain group of people - the people like me a few years ago, who were progressive but uninvolved in politics
